The injury moves rookie Dak Prescot up a spot in the roster depth, but the team is expected to look at options in adding another quarterback to the roster.

The free-agent list is not very deep at the moment, with Nick Foles currently at the top of a list that includes Matt Flynn, T.J. Yates, Charlie Whitehurst and Michael Vick.
